Canada is known for loving their hockey and no matter how well its teams do in other sports, nothing will get Canadians more riled up then the Stanley Cup Finals. If you watch Canadian television, you'll notice that despite the Toronto Raptors making it to the NBA Finals this year, it's the Stanley Cup Finals that ends up being talked about first. Oddly enough, not a single Canadian team is playing for the Cup this year as the Boston Bruins and St-Louis Blues are tied up at one game apiece.
